Course Summary:
Language is how we make sense of the world. It makes us who we are, and is fundamental to society and the communities we all live in. On this course we'll look at language and how it shapes us, giving you the chance to get a deeper understanding of what language is and how it works. Humour, power, relationships, none of these would be possible without language. We'll look at linguistics in depth and give you the chance to learn descriptive terms so you can analyse language and assess how it works. You'll be introduced to the basic concepts and the theory of different branches of linguistics, like phonetics and morphology. We'll also encourage you to study the role of language in society and how it helps humans understand things. How we acquire it, the way it changes, and the way it forms an array of ways to communicate. We'll carry out conversation analysis, sociolinguistics and stylistics to get under the surface of the spoken or written word and understand more about what's really going on. The aim is not just to help you become skilled in linguistic analysis, but also to give you transferable skills that will be useful in the professional environment. Previous students have gone on to work in fields like teaching, research, publishing, broadcasting, advertising, management and politics. In each year of your course you'll be able to choose option modules to focus on topics that interest you. You could even study a foreign language throughout your course. In your second year you'll also have the chance to go on a work placement, which is designed to enhance your skills ready for employment and to help you gain useful contacts in your chosen field. The ERASMUS+ exchange scheme also offers a short-term opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities. You'll join classes and receive credits towards your degree at the same time.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!

    Excellent. If you are willing to throw yourself completely into the whole university experience (living away from home and committing fully to your degree) you will be richly rewarded.

    University is scary at first and a big step to take but after a week or so you get used to it and it's a great experience. You also meet people from all over the world and make lots of new friends.
